1993 dakota defrost not warm

I was driving to the store and the defrost was not thawing the windshield.the fan was blowing but no hot air.I got home and as soon as i parked and got out their was steam coming from under the hood.It was too cold out to check things out until a couple of days later.I did"nt find any blown hoses, but the coolent is goneand i just replaced the radiator not long ago.Could it be the heater core or a blown head gasket and if its a blown head would there be water in the oil.

You have another leak that is why there is steam coming from under the hood ,and no heat is because there is no coolant left to heat check water pump or loose hose clamp on radiator thank for your question.

Is it possible that your coolant froze from having to much water in the system?
refille it will coolant and check it again to see if it overheats and at same time has no heat inside.. if it still does it then you need to have the cooling system checked for hydrocarbons.. that wil determine if you have a blown headgasket... would be a rare thing to happen on that engine

    DID YOU NOT READ THAT THE DEFROST WAS ON SO COLD OUTSIDE.. NO???

    YOU TELLING ME IF THE COOLANT FROZE THEN IT WOULDNT OVERHEAT?



    IF SO YOU ARE SO WRONG.. WHERE DID YOU READ NO COOLANT?

    I READ THAT IT WAS LATER AFTER IT COOLED THAT THE COOLANT LEVEL WAS CHECKED BUT DID IT STEAM THE WATER FROM THE SYSTEM?



    MAYBE ITS JUST ME BUT BOILING WATER MAKES THE STEAM THAT WOULD MAKE THE LEVEL LOW...

    SO I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU 66 chrgr.. read the post again before you give your smarta$$ remark.. and i thought this was a ok place to stop in to help out ppl i guess i was wrong... thanks for clearing that up for me

Why does my 1993 buick roadmaster heat fine but most times the blower won't blow on my windshield to defrost?


Are you referring to the blower NOT blowing air or it is blowing air but will not direct the flow to defrost?

Tip

Tips for operating Air conditioning system on Toyota Hilux and someother...


To cool off your Toyota after it has been parked in the hot sun, drive with the windows open for a few minutes. This vents the hot air, allowing the air conditioning to cool the interior more quickly.

Make sure the air intake grilles in front of the windshield are not blocked (by leaves or snow, for example).

On humid, do not blow cold air on the windshield. The windshield could fog up because of the difference in air temperature on the inside and outside of the windshield.

Keep the area under the front seats clear to allow air to circulate throughout the vehicle.

On cold days, set the fan speed to high for a minute to help clear the intake ducts of snow or moisture. This can reduce the amount of fogging on the windows.

When driving on dusty roads, close all windows. If dust thrown up b the vehicle is still drawn into the vehicle after closing the windows, it is recommended that the in intake be set to FRESH and the fan speed to any setting except "OFF".

If following another vehicle on a dusty road, or driving in windy and dusty conditions, it is recommended that the air intake be temporarily set to RECIRCULATE, which will close off the outside passage and prevent outside air and dust from entering the vehicle interior.

HEATING

For best results, set controls to;
Fan speed ---- Any setting except "OFF"
Temperature----Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake ---- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow ---- FLOOR
Air conditioning ---- OFF

For quick heating, select recirculated air for a few minutes. To keep the windows from fogging, select fresh after the vehicle has been warmed.

Press the "A/C" button on for dehumidified heating.

Choose floor/windshield air flow to heat the voltage interior while defrosting or defogging the windshield.

AIR CONDITIONING

For best results, set controls to;

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards COLD (blue zone)
Air intake --- (outside air)
Air flow --- PANEL
Air conditioning --- ON

For quick cooling, move the air intake selector to recirculate for a few minutes.

VENTILATION

For best results, set controls to;

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards COLD (blue zone)
Air intake --- (outside air)
Air flow --- PANEL
Air conditioning --- ON

DEFOGGING

The inside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone) to heat; COLD (blue zone) to cool
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- ON

The outside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- OFF

On humid days, do not blow cold air on the windshield. The windshield could fog up because of the difference in air temperature on the inside and outside of the windshield.

DEFROSTING

The outside of the windshield

For best results, set controls to:

Fan speed --- Any setting except 'OFF"
Temperature --- Towards WARM (red zone)
Air intake --- FRESH (outside air)
Air flow --- WINDSHIELD
Air conditioning --- OFF

To heat the vehicle interior while defrosting the windshield, choose floor/windshield air flow.

Heater only blows out defrost


The defrost position is the default for safety so that air always blows on the windshield in case of frost.
The most common problem is a faulty blend door under the dash.
In most cases the door must be calibrated with a scan tool if you replace it.

Have a 93 sierra,cannot get air to defroster,can hear fan but will not blow on windshield ?


Can you hear your blend door at all. Does it change into other settings. Like to floor and vents. It could be your blend door actuator.

I have a 1993 dakota, the climate control only blows though the window area. I cannot get air flow to move from the window to any other setting, floor or dash. Wondering what the issue may be and how to...


wakow4u, What you have to do is look for a vacuum line that comes from the engine and enters the passenger compartment through the firewall. This vacuum line controls the climate control. A small rubber hose that fits tightly will suffice as a good and quick repair. Good luck with this.

91 ciera only does defrost, no vents or AC


i believe this is a vacuum operated system. if there is a problem with the vacuum supply to the control unit, it will automatically default to defrost. i would start by checking the vacuum source lines. good luck!

Bizarre. It is blowing hot air? If so are there vents you can change direction towards windshield?
